Even the most patient people find it difficult to keep themselves occupied on long journeys. Although coach trips are enjoyable, relaxing ways to see multiple places in a short length of time, the long journeys in between stops can be tedious. This guide will help you to keep entertained during the long journeys.

What items should you bring on a long coach trip?

You should make sure that you bring enough snacks and bottled water to last you the entire length of your journey. Being hungry will make the journey even more tedious.

You should also ensure that you bring an electronic device and some headphones with you, as this will enable you to play travel games and listen to music, films and television shows on your device without disturbing the other passengers. Last but not least, you should pack a copy of your travel insurance in case of accident or emergency.

Note - UK coach travel insurance policies are only bookable via our call centre, not online. Call 0800 316 0104 to book.

Best ways to pass the time on a long coach journey

The best ways to pass the time on a long journey include listening to your favourite music, or reading a book. You should also consider getting a card game or a travel game set, especially if you have children. Furthermore, consider taking a game console or electronic device on which you can download films and videos as most coaches will have charging ports for your device.
